Now that's a lead sharpener!!
« on: June 15, 2017, 08:15 PM »
Came across this on Kickstarter today. Thinking of getting a brass one for my office desk!

Very slick and a bit nicer than my boxknife.

Makes sense. When I'm in the shop I often use a plane to sharpen pencils.

Pretty cool, but I don't see one in my future, I have enough mechanical pencils and lead that I would probably lose the ability to write before I ran out.

I don't see this as something to put in the shop, but something to put on my desk next to my fountain pens.  Thanks to the OP, I am in for one.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!
